Yesterday morning Winter was back. Temperatures dropped, and it was cloudy, cold, and windy when Jayden left for school in the morning. It was just as cloudy, cold, and windy when I went to pick him up. On the walk home we talked about how cold it was again and he said to me, "Maybe when we get home we can have the Leprechaun hot chocolate and get warm." I had forgotten that "the Leprechaun" had sent us a little gold pot of green hot chocolate! Ray found it while shopping online and had it sent to Jayden.
And Jayden was amazed at the 'magic' powder in the pot. It's white powder...
...but it makes green hot chocolate!
And it's really very delicious, a very rich flavor, and Jayden I both like it very much. I enjoyed mine with a ginger biscotti and Jayden enjoyed his topped with lots of whipped cream!
It hit the spot and warmed us up! But two more things really warmed my heart yesterday. One was a package that was sent to me from my blogger friend Irene @ Irene's RE~VINTAGED, Irene lives in Australia and I was so lucky to happen upon her blog. She is very talented and makes wonderful creations out of vintage materials. I was lucky enough to snag these two beautiful pillows that Irene crafted out of a vintage tablecloth:
And this is Jayden mimicking my reaction when I opened the package! YES!
I'm sorry that my photography skills leave much to be desired and these pictures do not do Irene's talent justice, her workmanship is exquisite and I really appreciate her attention to detail!
And Irene was so sweet to also include in my package these beautiful cross-stitched works of art.
Thank you, Irene, I feel so Blessed!
And the next thing to warm my heart was Jayden. I told him I was very tired and wanted to lay on the couch for a little while. He said he was tired too and that he would take a nap with me, and I thought, oh well, I guess there goes the nap because he usually has ants in his pants. But he very sweetly climbed up next to me, and he started singing a lullabye to me very softly, one that he made up by himself, while at the same time patting my head. It was just the sweetest thing. And I really fell asleep! And so did he.
